    Photo Oxford is a photography festival produced by Photography Oxford (charity registration no. 1154142). Previous festivals were held in 2014 and 2017.

    The charity’s aim is to bring international and local photography, contemporary and historical, to the city of Oxford, along with photographic debate and discussion, and to invite local residents and visitors to Oxford of all ages to view, share, enjoy, and learn about photography from new perspectives.

    2020 coincides with the centenary of the first women graduating from the University of Oxford. The theme for this year’s Photo Oxford Festival is Women and Photography: Ways of Seeing and Being Seen. The festival will include indoor and outdoor exhibitions and installations and projections, online discussion, films, and workshops.

    Oxford’s 8 twin cities - Leiden in the Netherlands, Bonn in Germany, León in Nicaragua, Grenoble in France, Perm in Russia, Wrocław in Poland, Ramallah in Palestine and Padua in Italy - will all be brought together for the first time in a joint exhibition of photography reflecting the festival theme.

    The exhibition will be curated by Oxford photographers Irmgard Hueppe and Simon Murison-Bowie. The full exhibition will appear online, and highlights representative of the 8 twin cities.

    For information about Photo Oxford 2020, see the Photo Oxford website.

  • Remembrance Sunday Service

    • Date: 8th November 2020
    • Location: St Giles
    • Time: 10:45 - 11:30
    • Cost: Free

    Oxford City Council will host the city’s Remembrance Sunday service on its social media platforms this year, after the in-person event was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Remembrance Sunday, which takes place on the second Sunday in November, is normally marked in Oxford with a parade and remembrance service at the War Memorial in St Giles’.

    It is one of the largest and most cherished events in the city’s calendar, and hundreds of residents turn out and stand shoulder-to-shoulder with current and former service personnel to remember the fallen of past wars.

    Sadly, this year’s event will not be able to take place due to the coronavirus pandemic and the Government’s guidelines on social gatherings.

    Instead, the City Council will host a pre-recorded remembrance service on its social media platforms – including YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – just before 11am on Sunday 8 November 2020.

    Further details will be released nearer the time.
